Affordable Housing Corporation to resume demolition of former Wellington Arena

May 26, 2023

The Ministry of Labour has lifted the work stoppage order it issued on the demolition of the former Wellington Arena (“Duke Dome”). Demolition will resume on Tuesday, May 30.

Demolition was paused on May 8 after a small amount of asbestos was discovered in the west wall. This asbestos material was not found during earlier abatement work in April.

During the pause, a provincial government inspector attended the site and determined there was no risk to the community, environment, or workers. Hastings Prince Edward Public Health also found no risk to the community.

Further monitoring will continue for the duration of the demolition by a third-party company to ensure all safety requirements are met. The demolition contractor will be adding additional screening on the perimeter fence for the duration of the demolition in excess of provincial government guidelines.

The Prince Edward County Affordable Housing Corporation (PECAHC) accepted transfer of the property from the municipality in August 2021. PECHAC is constructing a new 36-unit affordable housing development comprised of one, two, and three-bedroom units and four three-bedroom affordable family townhomes.
